Exploded view of single-domain states [{\bf S}_1], [{\bf S}_2], [{\bf S}_3] and [{\bf S}_4 ] (solid rectangles with arrows of spontaneous polarization) formed at a phase transition from a parent phase with symmetry [G=4_z/m_zm_xm_{xy} ] to a ferroic phase with symmetry [F_1=2_xm_ym_z]. The parent phase is represented by a dashed square in the centre with the symmetry elements of the parent group [G=4_z/m_zm_xm_{xy}] shown.
